Jan says, “I make the canvas bags that hold the reusable plastic bags we get from the grocery store. They are totally hand-made as I buy the canvas by the yard, measure, cut, applique, paint and sew them. I have been making these for probably 14 or 15 years. Each one is original and some people have asked for specific designs such as cats, fish, sunflowers, and a particular breed of dog.
“I also make lots of aprons, including matching mother-daughter aprons. Folks have asked me to make father-son aprons, too, maybe with a barbeque theme. You might see them in the shop before too long.
“Most of the things I make, such as dresses for little girls, are not sold in the shop, but donated to local organizations that help needy children.”
